Look out Sonos, Logitech rolls touchscreen music streamer

The rivalry between Sonos — the premium digital music streaming system I wrote about recently — and Logitech is heating up.

Just after Sonos introduced a new $349 touchscreen Wi-Fi remote control, Logitech today is announcing its own touchscreen Wi-Fi remote, going on sale in December for $300.

Logitech’s remote works with its “Squeezebox” system for streaming music from PCs and the Web to wireless receivers in the home. It’s not as luxe as the Sonos system, but the receivers are less than half the cost, about $150.

Also announced is a new $200 Squeezebox Radio with a color display and built-in alarm clock that’s going on sale this month.
